Every whale and dolphin - safe & free
There are 4 vital ways that we are fighting for the survival of whales and dolphins.
Together we can:
Whales and dolphins have a right to live free and healthy lives. These highly intelligent individuals should not suffer for human entertainment.
Commercial whaling is illegal. And yet, every year, Japan, Norway and Iceland kill around 1,500 whales.
Create healthy seas
Commercial fishing, oil and gas drilling, and shipping are threatening the lives of whales and dolphins.
Prevent deaths in nets
Hundreds of thousands of whales and dolphins are accidentally caught and killed in fishing gear every year.
Whales play a vital role in the health of our planet and have the right to life & freedom.
